critics consensus

As miserable and insipid as its protagonists, The Informers fails to provide anything to think about after the sheen of fake blond is gone. Read critic reviews

A movie executive (Billy Bob Thornton) carries on an affair with a newscaster, while his son (Jon Foster) tries to sort out his relationship with his promiscuous girlfriend (Amber Heard).

    Criminally underrated.

    It's easy not to care about these 80's self-absorbed, self-destructive characters. That makes this movie hard-to-see. Maybe Bret Easton Ellis die-hards will appreciate this dead-end tale.

    "The Informers" is not so much a movie as it is a series of uneventful (and unconnected) scenes in which a bunch of unlikeable characters do drugs and have sex. What fun! If I must call it a film, it's the most shallow, dull and annoying one I've seen in ages. I can't beleive that so much acting talent is present in such trash. Avoid this like the plague.

    Give it up to Hollywood. They know how to jam a film full of stars and adapt a screenplay from a well-known writer's novel and still pretty much lose track of what they are depicting. In a "Crash"-like story structure (for lack of a better description), "The Informers" is about sex, drugs, disease, and the lives of the rich. Don't expect to get anything out of this film besides seeing Amber Heard nude most of the film. Mickey Rourke's appearance is short and sweet, but still hardly worth the trouble.
